Books: Till We Have Faces

Till We Have Faces is quite a compelling read. From Amazon

As promised, this is the second installment about the books from Image Journal’s top 100 that I’ve recently read.

The Lewis work (1956) is a retelling of the Greek myth of Cupid and Psyche. I know little of the original.

Beyond retelling (from a different viewpoint) the myth, the tale showcases the struggle between the modern worldview and the (in this instance) the more traditional, or uneducated worldview that reveres and fears the gods.

It’s well-written, and a relatively quick read. I enjoyed it, which is no surprise, since I’ve enjoyed all the other fiction works I’ve read by Lewis.
